Video Transcript for Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - 42145 Review

Today we're going to review part number 42145. This is the Hopkins 7 Way and 4 Way Replacement Connector for Dodge Chrysler OEM style plugs. This part will provide a 7 way and a 4 way trailer connector to fit many Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Mercedes and Mitsubishi vehicles. It's a custom fit, so I would recommend to go to our website, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. Also, on the product page for this part number, we do list many of the vehicles that it will fit that have a factory 7 way. There are quite a few Chrysler, Dodges, Jeeps, Mercedes, and some Mitsubishis that it will fit.

But again, it's listed on the product page or use our fit guide to make sure it will work. It does include this mounting bracket and the hardware for installing it. It has a nice lid on the 7 way. It come with a nice included integrated dust cover for the 4 way. Overall length on this is about 10 inches. When you go to install this, these vehicles that it fits, if you go to underneath the vehicle, you'll find the factory OEM harness that this will plug right in to.

Then it'll give you this at the back of your vehicle. Again, the mounting bracket, you just slide it in. Mount it using the included hardware to mount the connector to the mounting bracket and then the set of hardware to mount the bracket to your vehicle. That should do it for the review on part number 42145. This is the Hopkins 7 Way and 4 Way Replacement Connector for Dodge Chrysler OEM style plugs.

When you have a truck that came with trailer wiring thats now 20 years old, the trailer wiring 8 pin plug simply gets worn out. Why not replace it with something better. THis part is that something better because not only is it an 8 pin plug it has an additional 4 pin plug for the simpler trailers that do not have the electric brake wiring or charging circuit for campers. This eliminates the need to have a converter plug for that simple wiring but retains the capability of the 8 pin for folks who have multiple trailers with electric brakes and simple trailers with stop running and left or right turn signals. Thanks etriler....you made my life easier and better. 500413


Comments

Still a heavy duty after market non Original Equipment Manufactured Part....but its much much better than the original part from Dodge that wore out. Usually OEM parts are the best but not this time.. Thanks etrailer!!

Easy install on my Dodge. Took about ten minutes (including removal of the old plug) and I was back on the road with working trailer lights. 401207

Nice combination 7-blade & 4-pin connector which plugs into OEM wiring (Jeep Grand Cherokee) and mounts to existing hitch bracket. Easy install, worked great right out of box, and makes for a very clean look. etrailer ordering is very easy and shipping was quick. Thanks! 188695

Bolted right on. Great look, good quality, rugged design. The bolts could be just a hair longer, was kinda hassle but could blame that on my aftermarket bumper! Would definitely buy again! 403675

by:

Very easy to install. Nice and sturdy, it's not the cheap flimsy plastic. Obviously very handy to have the 4-flat and the 7-way in one plug. I would recommend this product to my mother. 58181

fits nice 2008 dodge ram 1500, but the mounting holes with machine screw are torn loose from housing and causing entire assy to be flopping around thru bumper, The mounting holes are hollow standoffs and pull thru plastic, GREAT idea I love it, until you could no longer have it fastened to bumper, housing needs to be solid and not extruded standoffs 469280

This item was a perfect fit just plugged it in and 4 mounting screws. Better than original with the 7 blade RV plug and also a 4 pole flat in the same unit. The service was excellent and I received it earlier than expected. I would 100% buy all my trailer wiring products from etrailer.com 538631

Units arrived in a timely fashion. Unit fit well into a 2006 Dodge aftermarket flatbed. I did need to find other screws, as this unit is a bit thicker than the OEM one. Bedding of wires seems very good. I am a little unsure of the durability of the exposed wires from the connector to the back of the plug. I put several wraps of cloth tape followed by two of 'Electricians' tape on this one. [Note; this unit travels the ALCAN highway among others. All locales are noted for flying grit & gravel.] Connector worked 'right out of the box'. [I had a scare at first as the plug in tester would not indicate on the L. turn signal. It turned out to be the tester plug - NOT the purchased product!] I anticipate this will be a great help in towing varied units. Not having to go under the bed for the OEM 4-wire connector will sure ease this older back! 408331

We have now traveled many thousands of miles with this unit. There have been no problems. I would recommend this product to others without hesitation.

Do you have a question about this Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring?


  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring for a 2000 Dodge Durango without a Factory Tow Package Connection
  • Since your 2000 Dodge Durango does not have the tow package wiring installed you will need to install a working 4-way connector, # 118334, first and then install a 4-way to 7-way adapter, # 37185. There is not a connection point for the factory replacement connector, # 42145, that you mentioned. If you need to install the 7-Way and need to have functionality for a brake controller and 12 volt power supply for towing you will need additional wiring and circuit breakers.

  • Parts Needed for Setting up a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 For a Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • If your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 came with a 7-Way trailer connector from the factory it is pre-wired for a brake controller. If this is the case, all you would need is a brake controller and the wiring harness to plug the controller into the port under the dash. Our most popular brake controller is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885. It is a pretty easy controller to use and is quite effective. The proper wiring harness for a 2003 Ram with factory 7-Way is the # 3020-P. The whole set up would...

  • Installing 7-Way Trailer Connector on 1998 Dodge Dakota
  • It looks like you're wanting to install a 7-way on your vehicle, is that correct? If your truck was equipped with the factory 7-way, and you're wanting to replace it, you'd just unplug the harness from the rear of the connector, and replace it with a 7-way like part # HM40975. If your Dakota doesn't have a trailer connector, you'd first install a 4-pole like part # 118329. How you'd proceed from here will depend on how your trailer's equipped. If your trailer doesn't have electric brakes,...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness For a 2005 Dodge Durango
  • If you were required to install a factory bumper with a receiver hitch, it is very likely that there will not be a port for the Replacement Connector for Dodge OEM Style Plugs, item # 42145, to plug into. Normally this port is located on the driver side near the frame rail and bumper at the back of the vehicle. You may need to move the spare tire out of the way to find the connector. If that port is not present you will need a Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring for the 2005 Durango...

  • Installing Brake Controller on 2007 Dodge Ram with Factory 7-Way or Factory 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • If your 2007 Dodge Ram already had a 7-Way, then all you would need to do is connect the Hopkins Replacement harness, # 42145, and install the brake controller and plug it in to the factory tow package plug. If your Ram had a factory 4-Way, there are a couple of more steps. Start by plugging in the brake control adapter into the OEM harness located under the steering wheel, just to the right of the emergency brake pedal. Then find a place to mount the brake controller.

  • The 7-Way and 4-Way Replacement Connector, # 42145, is the correct harness for your 2008 Dodge Ram if you already have or had a factory 7-Way. One end mounts to the rear of the vehicle, there might even be a knock out on the bumper that can be removed. The other end plugs into the vehicle wiring. Your truck should have a plug behind the bumper, near the center. It will plug into the square connector of the harness. If the truck does not already have any connectors, you will need to start...

  • 7-Way Replacement Recommendation for a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • If your 2005 Jeep Liberty doesn't have the square connector for the 7-way socket like what the # 42145 has there is an option that you have. The part # PK11893 could work as a replacement as long as at the back of your current connector there is a round connector. Nearly every 7-way out there uses this style of connector. It will look like the picture I attached. If you have this style of 7-way the part # PK11893 would work well for you as a replacement 7-way.

  • Recommended 4-Way Flat Connector that Retains the Function of Factory 7-Way To Power Accessory

This will install right behind your 7-way to give you the 4-way plug you need for your backup camera. This will retain the functionality of your 7-way as well.

  • The Pollak Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # HM40975-11933, will fit your 2007 Dodge Ram, but will need to be mounted using the included bracket to a location under the bumper. A similar part is the Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 42145. This connector would also require mounting under the bumper. Both of these connectors have 7 and 4-Way functions and include mounting brackets. If you wanted to install a connector in the factory knockout on the bumper, you may have to make some...

  • GM and Dodge 7-Way Blade Plugs Not Wired The Same

I would use a circuit tester, item # 40376 if needed, to check the connectors inside both trucks 7-Way. I would then make a diagram of each vehicles connections and check the wiring with the standard...

You need the 7-Way and 4-Way Replacement Connector for Dodge Trucks, part # 42145, for your truck. It will plug directly into a receptacle under the bumper on your Dodge.

A more cost-effective option though would be to install the Hopkins # 42145 which comes with the 7-Way/4-Way connector and installs directly into your OEM connector.

  • No Running Lights On Trailer With 6-Pin Connected To 2003 Dodge Ram With Factory 7-Way
  • If you tested the trailer lights and everything is working then the problem is from the 6-Way connector back to the truck. You will want to use a circuit tester like, # 40376, to test the 7-Way connector attached to the 2003 Dodge Ram. First test the pin on the connector that would be the running lights and see if you have power coming out of the connector. If there is no power coming out then test the wire on the back of the connector that is for the running lights to see if you have...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 1999 Dodge Ram 3500
  • Replacement connector # 42145 only has 7 pins because there are only 7 functions in a 7-Way. It is possible the factory connector has some other circuit in it but it would not be used by the 7-Way. Or like you said it could be a dummy pin. Connector # 42145 is not listed as a fit for the 1999 Dodge Ram though. It is possible that it will fit I just can't guarantee it. We do have the similar EZ Connector # 319-S7-06D but if you went with it you would also need adapter # 319-R7-52.

  • Parts Needed to Install Trailer Brake Controller in 2008 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • If your 2008 Dodge Ram pickup does not have a factory trailer connector (4-pole or 7-way) at the back bumper then for brake controller installation you will do a hardwired installation using our Brake Controller Installation Kit # ETBC7. This kit requires a working 4-pole connector; if you need one use part # 119178KIT. The linked article and video cover the installation process for the ETBC7. For a brake controller I recommend a proportional type unit like the Prodigy P2 # 90885. This...

  • It sounds to me as if you may have a couple of issues with the brake controller wiring. If your vehicle has the factory 7-Way at the rear of the vehicle and your trailer has original wiring, you should not need to switch the Blue brake feed wire and the black 12 volt power wire on the trailer. I would make sure those wires are in the correct locations inside the trailer connector before proceeding to correct the wiring of the brake controller.

If the winch is for the trailer then powering off the trailer battery would also work. But you will need to charge the battery more frequently. As long as you know which wire is positive and negative you should be just fine. I wouldn't get too hung up on the colors of the wires as they aren't always consistent. For a winch you could...

  • Installing 7 Way Connector 32145 on a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica
  • If you have the factory tow package, installation of part # 42145 is very easy. There will be a connector on a wiring harness that will fit this part, it will be tucked up, maybe taped, somewhere close to the rear bumper. You will then attach the mounting bracket in a convenient location near the hitch, and it will hold the 7 way plug. If you do not have the factory tow package, you will need to connect a T-One harness inline with the tail lights using part # 118303. We have videos for...

(Thank you!) Based on the testing steps you have already taken, the problem would seem to have been isolated to your Dodge. I doubt that the Dodge brake pedal switch is the problem. The brake switch does tell the controller to generate a braking signal for the camper, but it does not tell it how...

  • Can Prodigy Brake Controller be Turned Off on a 2007 Dodge Ram
  • Brake controllers such as the P2 # 90885 have to have constant power to them otherwise you would have to go through the set up process every time. But the controller will go into a power saving mode after about 15 minutes of inactivity. While in power saving mode controllers only draw a few milliamps of power and that is such little power it would take it months of the truck just sitting for it to drain a battery. If it does not go into power saving mode then it could be due to corrosion...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Adapter For 2001 Dodge Durango To Tow ATV Trailer
